I am here to help you.
I use evidence-based treatment modalities to support my clients to work towards growth and lead healthier lives.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a therapy designed to help individuals change patterns of behavior that are not helpful, such as self-harm, suicidal thinking and substance abuse. DBT is a modified form of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) that was developed in the late 1970s by Dr. Marsha Linehan. This approach works towards helping individuals increase their emotional and cognitive regulation by learning about the triggers that lead to reactive and emotional states and helping them to assess which coping skills to apply in the sequence of events, thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to help avoid undesired reactions. Although DBT was originally designed to treat chronically suicidal and self-injurious behavior, it has since been adapted to treat a variety of other problems.
I completed the Behavioral Tech's two year Intensive DBT Training for Independent Practitioners. I am committed to providing the highest quality research based treatments for borderline personality disorder, anxiety, depression, relationships issues and emotion regulations problems.
Complicated grief therapy (CGT) treatment model was developed to address symptoms of complicated grief. Drawn from attachment theory and cognitive-behavioral therapy, CGT includes techniques similar to prolonged exposure. Prolonged exposure technique involves repeatedly telling the story of the death and in-vivo exposure activities. Individuals struggling with symptoms of complicated grief may experience chronic intense emotions, rumination and engaging in maladaptive behaviors.
I participated in training through Columbia University Center for Complicated Grief.
I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
